these are grim times indeed, so here’s a little humor to lighten things up a bit: it seems that a politician died and applied for admission to heaven. when he met st. peter at the gate, he was told that since he was a politician, they would have to check his liar’s clock to determine whether he could get in or not. what’s a liar’s clock, he asked. well, that a clock that tells how many lies you have told. for every lie, the clock moves ahead a minute. so look, there is geo. washington’s clock: since george never told a lie, the hands of the clock are still on 12. so, curious, the politician asked about hillary clinton’s clock. oh that one st. peter said; i have it in my office. i’m using it as a ceiling fan.
